The teacher is a white man in his seventies. He first asks me how many wives I have, then how many kids I have. This is his ice breaker.
He asks what I see myself doing five years from now. I tell him my plans to start a non-profit organization to help Asian youth in the Bay Area. He immediately tells me that there is a need for such an organization in Sacramento & Yuba County. There is a big population of Asians in all the small counties. This makes me think about the geographic aspect of my potential organization. I want to be where I can make the most impact to help the youth and community.
The teacher is a history fanatic. We get along like old buddies. I'm always open to dialogue and ideas.
